Protector of her Universe

~Traumatized by Bugs

One would think that this 72 pound, 8-year old Weimaraner is totally fearless!  She protects us from the mailman, from anyone who rings our doorbell, UPS Trucks, squirrels, cats, people walking down our street pushing strollers or dogs, and from the bellows from an anxious bloodhound who’s owners walk him regularly near our street!  She has a very loud bark that may cause concern to anyone who does not know her.  Big dog + loud bark = perhaps a dog to be feared!!  


Maizie has one fear in life though….flying insects!  She knows the word “BUG.”  When someone says that word, she instantly looks UP!  She has learned bugs usually fly high—ceiling height.  She is afraid of bugs!  She will quickly exit the room to “hide” in her crate!  Here is a photo snapped two years ago of Maizie “hiding in her crate” after being traumatized by seeing a fly!  (ears back, look of concern!)  This morning there was a fly in our bedroom.  She shivered for an hour while I petted her to console her to assure her everything will be alright.  She still took refuge in her crate.  Jerry eventually got rid of the pesky fly that traumatized our sweet almost fearless Maizie!

Breeder Commentary

Too funny — and I am sure her fear of bugs was accidentally ingrained. Our most natural responses are (typically) what we need to avoid. She is a sweet precious paper-shredding girl.
